We had no winner in our GAA Sports Lotto last week. The numbers drawn were: 13, 20, 26 and 30. The following five drawn tickets won €50: Mike Burke, Red City; John Fitzgerald, Clonmel; Pat Sheehan, Killusty; Dolores Cleary, Market Hill; and Josie Fitzgerald, Kiltinan.
This week we also had no jackpot winner. The €50 lucky dip went to Mary Godfrey, Derryluskin; and the five drawn tickets for €30 went to: K. Williams, Killusty; Mary McCormack, Kerry Street; Zoe Quinn, Sabrina Cahill and Yvonne Heffernan, all Merrys Clonmel. Tickets were sponsored by AIB Fethard. Next weeks draw takes place at McCarthys Hotel with a fund of €5,900. Thanks to the loyal committee who run the draw every week for the club.
The GAA club also has a number of tickets to sell with regards to the Fethard Gathering Festival and any committee member will be able to supply tickets if you are willing to indulge. The prizes for this draw are exceptional and well worth winning.
Our senior footballers were out on Sunday night last week in the Co. Championship in Templemore against a Tipperary northern selection, Thomas McDonaghs. The Blues gave a good account of themselves and were unlucky not to at least come away with a draw. Training continues on the usual night for hurling and football in preparation for the South Championship.
During the week we had a challenge with our Waterford friends Rathcormack and had a convincing win. Training is going well with good numbers attending and the spirit is high. So roll on summer and some exciting performances from ‘The Blues’.
In association with the GAA club and the County Board there will be a talk on ASAP (Alcohol and Substance Abuse Prevention) in the Abymill Theatre, Fethard, on April 26, from 8pm to 9pm. Our target audience is children 11 to 14 years and parents of all ages. Andrew O’Donovan, chairman Fethard Juvenile GAA club is expectant that as many as possible attend this talk. Guest speaker will be Pat Mulcahy. The club must be complimented in their promotion of this venture.
